Gene for diabetes?

I found this article today. Basically Australian scientists have isolated a gene (ld1) that regulates the function of beta cells in mice, affecting their ability to properly excrete insulin.

"Fat in the diet also switches on the gene as well as high glucose and stress too,??? he said."

What are your thoughts? Maybe regulating fat is just as important as lowering carbohydrates for diabetics?

They come out with a new "master gene" for a new disease process every other day. I don't really put much stock into it. As far as the lower fat and carbohydrate part of the diet, then what would they suggest we eat? Gotta have at least a moderate level of one of those. We can still show that this type of diabetes is not prevalent in HG society right? So take that and run.
